The Global Fellows Program works in consultation with Svent István University regarding the budget for the program. Upon arrival, each Fellow will receive European Union mobility funding via an Erasmus grant from Svent Istvan University. On-campus dorm housing is free in this program. The Global Fellows Program in conjunction with the host institution provides supplemental funding to offset other major costs including round-trip airfare and meals. Global Fellows should budget wisely and be willing to financially contribute to their experience for activities such as extra-curricular activities or travels. Students accepted to the program will receive confirmation of the amount of stipend in their letter of offer.

Note: Students should be prepared to pay some out-of-pocket expenses that the stipend will not cover. See the budget below for an estimated amount.

Accepted fellows will need to set up direct deposit with the Bursar in order to receive funding.
